Mineola, NY – Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and his wife Linda invite residents to a dome lighting ceremony on Wednesday, September 13th, 7pm-8pm, at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building, 1550 Franklin Ave, Mineola, in honor of National Recovery Month in September. The event – recognizing the federal campaign to raise awareness about prevention, treatment, and recovery support services – will also be a way for those in recovery from mental health or substance abuse disorders to “give back” and help others. As part of this “gratitude ceremony,” those in recovery and their family members are asked to donate much needed items for those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which will be transported to the affected areas. Currently, the need is greatest for baby wipes, diapers and baby food.
“Mental and Substance Abuse Disorders are prevalent in our community, and it’s imperative that individuals understand how to seek help,” said County Executive Mangano. “Not everyone seeks or receives the help and support they need to get better. The strength of the recovery community is in its goal to help others. We all need to give back. Recovery for Recovery.”
Information and resources on recovery support services will be made available in the Ceremonial Chambers of the Theodore Roosevelt Building from 6:30-7pm, preceding the dome lighting event.
